No Flight

With a subtle flap of your wings you touched freedom,she seemed to caress you back.
It was a long overdue reunion.

The Gods commanded the winds to be still;
there were to be no interruptions on this momentous occasion,when you were finally due to emancipate.

Clouds heard the news and created a pathway for you;
angels composed celabratory songs.
The blazing fire of your will burnt all doubt;
victory was the only expected guest.
The universe was prepared to receive its conquerer.

Not a sound was heard when your wings were finally unclipped for take off,
not a single heart was left whole when you suddeny chose to remain on the ground.

What should have been an alluring tale turned into a painful reminder,
that no matter how inviting the sky,some birds simply refuse to fly.
